Benefits / Improvements

There were no specific color choices but straightforward keywords which I mainly focus on Lightning, Fast & Lite.

It's a python library so first thing came into my mind is to use python's great blue and yellow colors, it would also help to distinguish it from other steem related projects (with thunder shaped logos). I'm not sure if it's appropriate to share but busy.org is a well known example.

I also want to include some banners to use for project update posts. Lightsteem has two posts right now with a nice looking terminal/code screenshots as post thumbnails.

I've already picked the colors that I want to use. These are just for presentation purposes.

First I thought I can use a typeface following the slightly rotated horizontal line of the icon to continue the movement affect. However it might be unnecessary. I'd like to hear your thoughts about it.

And here are the banner set, there is no specific direction, I explored two alternatives. Which end up well. And It's in a well organized, easy to adjust psd file.

I like the very subtle gradient in that yellow part. Its well balanced and I like you created multiple banners.

Thanks, and sorry for the early post, I thought it was announced in the post when I get the DMs.


Thank you for your review, @andrejcibik!

So far this week you've reviewed 2 contributions. Keep up the good work!

the slanted logotype is lit! got that light vibe :D


It's so light that it's levitating :) Thanks

Nice work, I can see fine pieces in there which I like.


And the monochrome version on the blue-gradient background looks nice as well.


However, for some reason. I am not able to perceive the logo normally in the other cases in which you rotated it. I noticed a similar effect on tobaloidee's recent work for FPL although it was not about rotation but colours. Still, in some cases I can see it normally and in some, it just loses its meaning. :D


Hey, thanks for the nice words.

I can't say I'm totally understand what you said at the end but I just checked tobaloidee's FPL presentation, I think these are perceived different just because it's more like a negative color scheme.

I couldn't find a helpful article right now but that's about how we see things different when they are dark on light or opposite even their sizes are equal.

In my case, if logos on the banners looks different due to its perspective, there is also a slight shadow under the logos that might affect how it looks. Or I just messed up while preparing the presentation. ¯_(ツ)_/¯


Yes, those are exactly which I meant. I can't help it but I perceive it differently and it does not look like the original image.


And it is similar with the rotated versions of yours.


What kind of sorcery is that now I can't tell which one was the correct one, and I absolutely can't fix the 3rd image in my mind. Like the face stands still but eyes and mouth changed places. OMG now I'm cursed as well, I gotta find another career.

I like simple and know simple is hard what trips me up is that once i see the two arrows that is all I see.

Once you see it... Thanks for coming by, those arrow like shapes wasn't planned actually, it happened but it actually well-fitted with the project's description. You ask something, you get something. I should've include this in the presentation.
